Mimi's Ladybug

Hi Everyone,

There are so many things to be Thankful for.  It doesn't take much to show people how Thankful you are.
This card will be going to a Pharmacist who helped me find the medication my Son needs to help control his temperature.  Unfortunately there is an extreme shortage of this medication and after over 100 phone calls, this particular Pharmacist helped me located some.
I am forever Thankful to her.

Admiring the Star

Hi Everyone,

For this card I decided to do a one layer card.  It has all been designed on the Silhouette Cameo Software.
Because I printed it out using the Laser printer, I could then foil the sentiment.
If you are going to do this, make sure that you only place the foil on the sentiment, then place a scrap piece of copy paper over the entire design before putting it in the carry sheet then through the minc.  (Some of the image will transfer onto the scrap, however if you don't use the scrap, the enter image will transfer to the carry sheet.)


Ingredients:

Amanda is Awesome

Hi Everyone,

Well it has been a week of roller coaster emotions for me this week.
It all started when I decided to finish work.
I was being bullied by a Customer and this week I finally got the courage to make a phone call to report it.
They asked me to send my report to them and that was on Tuesday.
So, after ignoring the computer since then and all the emotions that went along with reading my report again, I finally got the courage to send it tonight.
I must admit that I am proud of myself for standing up to this Bully and it certainly needed to be done for myself and others.


Anyway, tonight I thought I would share this card using the adorable 'Amanda is Awesome' from Stamping Bella (link below).

Look Whoo

Hey Little Birdie

Hi Everyone,

I just love this stamp 'Hey Little Birdie' from Sugar Nellie.
I must admit that I have had it for almost a year, however I have been too scared to colour it.

However, I stepped out of my comfort zone and coloured her in.
I must say that I now love it and will be colouring her again.
